I have a bit of whistle on my vehicle since I switched body panels, but I could swear it is from the doors. Will go back and take the mirrors off and make sure weather insulation is in the correct place. Other than that not sure how you could hear whistling in the car from the front end (I would assume your windows are not open).

When I first heard it I thought the car just wanted to whistle along to some music so I turned on my ipod - problem solved, I can't hear it any more. :)

Well, I still don't know what was fixed, but I'll play anyway. :) How's the antenna? I know a number of folks have had whistles at higher speeds from them, particularly from the extendable stubby ones.

well actually I hear a whistle too at about the same speed. It usually comes from the passenger side, and I think it comes from the roof area. But im not sure if its the wind through the mirrors. I thought maybe its just a smart characteristic and that since the roof is made of glass there must be some space that catches air. I hear it all the time at 50 and above. If anyone knows the reasoning or if I should get it checked please let me know.

in essence it sounds like wind getting caught at high speeds and doesnt know where to go.

My sister car, a 2015 Smart ForTwo, has the same problem since last week.
A whistle sounds from the front of the car when it exceeds 30-40km/h.
I was searching for some sheets, or unglued rubber seals in the ventilation system...
But nothing
